Sisters and Best Friends

- by Karin Elizabeth Weiss

This week's theme: Siblings

Brothers and sisters. Many people have one or more of them. Sometimes they are the best thing that ever happened to you and other times, not so much. When growing up they share your secrets, rat you out, brake your stuff and stand by you when the chips are down. All of these experiences - the ups and downs of going from little people to big people with someone, form a unique bond. Quite often it's a bond that's resilient, rewarding and bullet proof.


Art: Sisters and Best Friends by Artist Karin Elizabeth Weiss
This is a landscape wall-quilt with figures taken from a photograph of my mother and her sister in the 1930's. I could not capture their wonderful facial expressions in fabric or paint, so I made digitized photo transfers of their faces and appliqued them to the figures. I was very pleased with the result.
